  1. I've posted bits and pieces before, but this is my original LC's "final resting place" after digging it out of my parents attic and upgrading w/a presto plus! Then came the real addiction - collecting 68k games! A picture below and my favorites - anybody see anything that brings them back down memory lane? Enchanted Scepters - The original disk, no box yet! Saw a boxed copy last year and missed the auction dangit. This is my grail game @ moment that I'm missing in box. The history behind this game, and Silicon Beach Software is crazy if you haven't looked it up. The guys there published this game, leveraged that to publish Airborne! (or maybe I have order backwards), then the smash hit in Dark Castle I & II, and then founded the company that would eventually give birth to Macromedia Flash! I love that it all started with these early, simple efforts. Shows what's possible as one embarks on a path. Airborne! - Sealed box, the game that made Dark Castle possible per above. Dark Castle - Sealed box, what else is there to say. NEEE! NEEE! Kings Bounty - Sealed box, my favorite game when the LC was new SimTower - I had a "copied" version, fun to "buy" it years later Syndicate - lots and lots of time in that one Quest for Glory I - blew my mind and my real intro to RPGs Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, Loom - some of my first gaming memories, totally impressed in my brain at this point! Spaceward Ho - An old favorite, took me longer to find a boxed copy of this than almost anything. Kings Quest (misc #s) - Who knew that ALL of the King's Quests weren't published on MacOS? Some were Apple II only. Thought my collection was hopelessly incomplete until learned that fact. Still annoyed. SimAnt - Very fond memories of playing this game with my family, maybe one of the first on the original LC. Nothing like it since IMO. Prince of Persia - The WOW game I saw early on a friend's SE? Marathon - First network LAN party, first time maybe also staying up until 5am!

    Here's my setup along with my true time-suck: collecting 68k games in original packages :)

    Early Mac LC proto?

    Yep, I'll try to post a pic sometime. Have it all set up with the original 12" RGB and managed to find one of the elusive Presto Plus accellerators so it runs at 33mhz '040 + ethernet! http://lowendmac.com/2000/sonnet-presto-plus-unleashes-the-color-classic/

    Early Mac LC proto?

    Wow - incredible! Does anybody here have one of the clear's? I would pay a pretty penny to get my hands on one, my original LC remains as the centerpiece / most used part of my collection.

    Zack's "Ye olde 68k games" conquests

    Finally got a copy of Enchanted Scepters - disk only still looking for a boxed version! - very cool game with some interesting history: - First game to ever have digitized sound on the macintosh - Built the original framework for the point-and-click game creation system "World Builder" which was invented by William Appleton and was the precursor to his development of SuperCard - First adventure game and 2nd release - after Airborne! (mentioned at the top of my thread) - by Silicon Beach Software that would eventually create the Dark Castle masterpiece franchise! And as usually, ending with (and posting into the FS forum because) - I WANT TO BUY YOUR OLD 68K BOXED GAMES! Let me know what you have, thank you -

    Putting out a WTB and figured I'd add it to this thread - does anybody have a BOXED copy of Enchanted Scepters kicking around?

    Totally, Color Dark Castle I would love to have. I think our interests overlap what w/the LCs etc - would love to see your 68k collection, I am unsure why I collect outside of nostalgia, but I tell myself it's because of the box art which I love viewing.

    - I think I can get more of them but in box they are around $400/ea, a guy on the forum bumped into a stash. Maybe I could organize a group buy.

    Finally got my games collection out of moving boxes, this isn't final display form but good enough to inventory! Top of the shelf are my crown jewels: Dark Castle sealed box Kings Bounty sealed box Sonnet Presto Plus in box Airborne! in original box Through the Looking Glass (thanks 68k!) Marathon sealed box. Other side of the shelf: Spectre VR sealed Gravis Mousestick sealed Price of Persia Then the next shelf down are my favorite 68k games, more or less: beyond dark castle Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis / and the last crusade Legend of Kyrandia SimAnt Syndicate Pathways into Darkness Loom Quest for Glory 1 (Sealed) Monkey Island (VG condition / complete) Monkey Island 2 Fa-18 hornet Lemmings Out of this World Rise of the Dragon PGA Tournament Golf Lunicus Castles Siege & Conquest Pirates! Leisure Suit Larry 1. The third shelf, underrepresented in same photo contains: Sierra's Gold Rush Police Quest 1 SimTower Full Throttle King's Quest 1 - 3, 5 (KQ 4 doesn't exist on Macintosh) Space Quest 1 & 3 Dragon's Lair Macwars (Sealed) MS Flight Simulator Fallout (PC - got a mac version to sell me?) Oregon Trail Zork I (with map) Arthur Quest for Glory V (PC - got a mac version to sell me?) Fallout 2 (PC - got a mac version to sell me?) Then move one shelf down and we have the dupes & stuff I don't care about at this point but will take offers on! Pinball Kings Bounty Apple II Dark Castle IIgs Version (thrashed case) Dark Castle Macintosh Version (thrashed case) Kings Bounty PC Quest for Glory One - good condition / complete Quest for Glory One - tear in other side of box that damaged art / complete Monkey Island - water damaged box, missing disks / manuals Kings Quest V - dupe Where in the USA is carmen san diego Indiana Jones & the last Crusade - nice condition just a dupe Prince of Persia II - no attachment Mac OS 8 - sealed in box Making this thread as a partial inventory, partially to let people know what I have. What I'd like to do next is photograph each individual game - sealed copies front & back, unsealed take them out completely. Any requests? Anything that I'm missing that I should have ?
  14. I'm sure some of you have seen my games thread in the Trading Post (aka "I will buy your 68k mac games!") but I wanted to start a section here to help me keep track of the 68k games that were a huge part of my first Macintosh experience. I've recently moved and hopefully will be pulling out the collection and getting more organized so I can add to this. But I'm going to start with my most recent conquest, and the one that's been the hardest to find - an original boxed copy of Airborne! which put Silicon Beach Software on the map. Jonathan Gay who programmed this went on to create Dark Castle I & II before he build the company that invented Flash and sold it to Macromedia, then Adobe.
